DENVER – Do you think cars drive too fast down your street or know of a sidewalk blind spot where cars cannot see you? Maybe you know a place where the bike lane could use more protection from traffic or does not connect through to your destination? Crash data only tells one side of the story, and we want to hear from Denver residents where they think our streets can be made safer.
“To create mobility freedom in our city, our people must feel safe no matter the mode of transportation they choose,” Mayor Michael Hancock said. “The city and state have considerable crash data, however, feedback from our residents regarding where they believe safety on our streets can be improved is just as important. This survey will help Denver broaden our insight into the safety of our streets and neighborhoods.”
Denver residents and visitors are encouraged to visit denvergov.org/visionzero to take the map-based survey, select the location of their feedback, and add it to the map before April 30, 2017. Responses from the Vision Zero map survey will be used collectively by the city’s Vision Zero Technical Advisory Committee to identify patterns in behavior and street design to help set priorities for the Vision Zero action plan
Denver will also be hosting a Vision Zero Summit on Wednesday, March 8 at the McNichols Civic Center Building. The summit will bring together neighborhood groups and local mobility leaders to discuss the national Vision Zero movement, to educate about Denver’s Vision Zero progress, and to engage and encourage stakeholders to help improve safety on city streets.
“Only through a broad-based community effort will we be able to reduce the senseless harm to our people from accidents and create safer, more viable mobility options for everyone,” the Mayor concluded.
